ACES studios gesloten, MSTS2 geannuleerd
« on: Friday 23 January, 2009, 22:29:22 »
Zojuist is op o.a. IGN het bericht verschenen dat ACES studios, de ontwikkelaars van MSTS2, per direct gesloten zijn.
Dit betekend dat MSTS2 naar alle waarschijnlijkheid (of er moet een wonder gebeuren :P) niet meer zal verschijnen.

Edit:
Het is nu bevestigd door Steve Heijster, een van de (nu ex-) developers van MSTS 2:

Hi everyone,

I wanted to say something since I know that the IGN article was particularily focused on Flight Simulator and not Train Simulator.

ACES studio has been closed and approximately 130 positions eliminated. MS remains commited to the Flight and Train Simulator franchises, and while it is possible that the products will be continued in some form in the future, for the time being no further development is being done. In the mean time sales of FSX will still continue, and I hope everyone continues to enjoy that product and all the fantastic 3rd party add-ons for it.

I am saddened that people will not get to see our work on TS2, as it was shaping up to be a fantastic product. I just wanted to say it was nice to be able to participate in the community. I enjoy both the feedback and the excitment of the community and I hope it remains strong and looks to other alternatives.

Take care!
Steve Heijster

Nu maar hopen dat hij niet te lang in de ijskast blijft liggen, begrijp uit alle verhalen dat hij nog niet definitief gecancelled is maar on hold staat.
